Week 37... Oh yeah!

I did NOT see the number 170 this morning.... I saw 169!!!
I am down 5 pounds from last week and the Hubs is down 2 pounds. BOOYA!

I am SO happy to see that number! That makes this weeks challenges seem worth it. I know I shouldn't put everything into a number, and I'm not really, it's just sweet to see that.

This morning my family had a little photo shoot done by a family friend who does excellent work. We went to a nice Estate Park with fall colors and it was drizzling a bit but no big rain. This is the first photo shoot since we've lost weight, so I was feeling a lot more positive about it. I had all of us wearing different browns with denim jeans. I even got a size 16 pair of jeans and they fit! The hubs said that my top was too big on me - I got it over a month ago and it's a 1x. I felt comfortable in it. I will post some of the pics when I get them. Can't wait to see them!!

Well, I am off to a busy Saturday getting house work done and then taking my teens to a youth dance. The hubs is stressing with all that he has to do. It makes life so much less enjoyable for him. I wish I could push a button and take it all away for him. Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! XOX ~Margene

5 pounds! That is incredible! WOW! You must be walking on cloud 9!

Stress-ugh! Stress kills my joy (and when it kills my joy, I have to be very careful bcs I'm prone to kill everyone else's joy!). Not Nice!!

I hope the stress lets up!

Looking forward to the pics :)

Just amazing...Keep going strong!

Hooooooray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That 5 lb loss is soooo great! You deserve it! I am guess that at 169 a size 1x isnt your size anymore, even though it might be what you are used to. I had that same issue. I still go for bigger clothes and then i am shocked when they dont fit...

Great week for you and Hub's! Hope his stress level settles down now that he has some wheels for the commute.

I been thinking about this for a while. I have a good bit of medifast food left over and it's just taking up space on the shelf. I'd really like to give it to you, if you're interested. You can email me at ljsommar@yahoo.com to discuss and I can tell you what I have and you can tell me what you can use.

Have a great week!

Lynn

This worked. YEAH for you and 169 lbs.
I don't understand why I ended up at week 36 for so long but the direct link worked. I've been following the link from your profile page, you know click to go to webpage.
Oh well I'm here and I'm going to just put you in my favorites on my explorer and that way you'll come up like you're suppose to.
I can't wait to see the pictures of you and your family. I'm so excited for you.
Now I have more to read but wanted you to know this worked.
Take care and have a blessed evening.
